All national dailies except Nikkei wrote that the Okinawa prefectural government has informally decided to conduct on Feb. 24 a prefecture-wide referendum on the ongoing FRF construction off Camp Schwab, predicting that an official announcement will be made as early as today by Governor Tamaki. Although the results of the vote will not be legally binding, the governor is reportedly hoping to derail the relocation initiative by reaffirming local voters’ opposition to it.
